Cannibalism, Headhunting and Human Sacrifice in North America: A History Forgotten
This riveting volume dispels the sanitized history surrounding Native American practices toward their enemies that preceded the European exploration and colonization of North America. "We abandon truth when we gloss over the clashes between Native Americans and Europeans, encounters of parties equally matched in barbarity," says George Franklin Feldman, "We neglect true history when we hide the uniqueness of the varied cultures that evolved during the thousands of years before Europeans invaded North America." The research is impeccable, the writing sparkling, and the evidence incontrovertible: headhunting and cannibalism were practiced by many of the native peoples of North America.
